PATENTS in international shipping

Have to be registered with the U.S. Patent Office in Washington D.C.

However, stopping patents from coming to the USA is challenging because some small changes can be a reason to go for a new patent.

In international shipping, in the event of a violation, a Patent holder has to submit to U.S. Customs an application called "PATENT IMPORT SURVEY." He can go to the International Shipping Court of International Trade if he loses.
